Acer S5 Ultrabook European Launch Hands On

Posted on 06 March 2012, Last updated on 06 March 2012 by

At the Acer press event at CeBIT today we heard about the S5, the levitating Ultrabook!

It’s still the ‘thinnest in the world’ and still 15mm thick but we did manage to confirm some specs and get a little look at the device manager.

At the moment it’s being marketed as a 2nd-gen Core Ultrabook but it’s clear that unless Intel have some more, major delays on Ivy Bridge production that it will launch as a 2nd-generation Ultrabook with 3rd-generation Core CPU.

    Isn’t it HD Graphics 4000 3rd gen iCore?

    Yea, good catch Nokolay. HD 4000 == Ivybridge which is 3rd generation iCore and 2nd generation Ultrabook hardware spec.
    This is a 2nd generation Ultrabook in marketing and release date but a 1st generation Ultrabook in terms of hardware.
    (It’s Acer’s 2nd generation of Ultrabook from their perspective I guess…)
